Concerned parents said they will speak at the Williamson County School Board on Monday concerning the safe use of disinfectant cleaning products at schools.
The group "Parents for Students Safety" claim they sent a letter to the Board on the "persistent chemical concerns and multiple violations of the Tennessee Open Records Act."
The Williamson County school system denies this claim and say they have responded to open request claims and abided by the law.
The group says that school officials are not protecting children from exposure to these chemicals.
"We have seen for four years a disinfectant cleaner, which is registered with the EPA as a pesticide, being applied and used by the school custodians and other unlicensed/insufficiently trained people including students for cleaning lunch tables with no protective gear. This and more in these matters are against manufacturers' safety data sheet recommendations and are taking place on an ongoing basis. We informed all School Officials of these concerns many times over these years. These chemicals are bio-accumulative. The Williamson County Schools District officials are not protecting children from exposure to these chemicals," said Daniela Kunz, the head of the group, in a news release.
